Annuity is a series of receipts or a fixed payment made periodically at a specified time. An example is the interest received from bonds or cash dividends from a preferred stock.
There are two types of annuities:
- Ordinary annuity (ordinary) is the annuity payments or receipts occur atend of of the period, as well as
- Annuity due (due) is the annuity payments or receipts made at the beginning of the period.
Understand that money can generate profits in a while if you invest at a certain rate of interest, which leads us to recognize that $ 1 (in the currency you prefer, either U.S. dollars, euro or local currency) to receive at a future date will not be worth as much as $ 1 you have in your pocket today. This relationship of interest and time is what determines the value of money in time.
Now, why $ 1 in our pocket today is worth more than $ 1 we receive in, say, 5 years? It is more simple than it seems, if we have $ 1 today, we have the opportunity to invest for 5 years (in this example) at a given interest rate, which will mean that at the end of 5 years, this $ 1 have a higher value due to interest earned.
Also as explained above, we must realize that money has a time value because of their purchasing power or purchasing power, which changes over time. In a period of inflation the purchasing power of our money will decrease as time passes. So if we buy two loaves now $ 1, and we have a rising inflation rate, by the time we buy only bread with the same $ 1.
This concept of the value of money over time tells us, as investors, that money to invest, you should always earn interest and these interests must be greater than the inflation rate in the country where we invest.
